News of the day - Hyphenated-American became a US citizen

Today, On June the 30th, 2011, Hyphenated-American has joined the ranks of citizens of the Great United States of America. In the presense of hundreds of witnesses he recited the sacred oath of an American:
I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.

Присоединяюсь к остальным поздравлениям, хоть и с опозданием (я сейчас в Питере, почти нет времени следить за новостями в Интернете)! Молодец, так держать! Прокатим и перекатим Обамчика на предстоящим выборах! Надо бы это дело обмыть (ну или хотя бы спрыснуть)!

Congratulations, Hyphenated-American! You can now drop the hyphenation if you want!

I was cruising the internet looking for a chart and tripped over your sight.

Congratulations! Welcome aboard.

I wish our politicians had to take that oath.

Comrades!

Thanks a lot for your kind words. I am honored to become an American.

And now for my Russian comrade-in-arms.

Леха, в натуре! Во-первых, С Днем Рождения. Во-вторых - ыптитЬ, теперь я - гражданин, панимаешь. Это дело точно надо спрыснуть. Как в Питере дела? Небось пьешь там и на тусовки ходишь. Завидую.
